Did Churchill really talk like this? I can't say I know much about the guy other than that he skillfully guided England through WW2 and wrote a lot of books including major academic works on WW2 and a history of Britain and its colonies, but I thought he had somewhat more class than these remarks would suggest. On the other hand, he certainly had a good command of the language.
I could certainly see them coming from H. L. Mencken or Mark Twain, though.

Churchill was a drunken, womanizing, potty mouthed, SoaB who smoked like a chimney, but by heck, he was also the leader the Allies needed to go up against the Axis and win.

"On two occasions, I have been asked, 'Pray, Mr. Babbage, if you put into the machine wrong figures, will the right answers come out?' I am not able to rightly apprehend the kind of confusion of ideas that could provoke such a question." -- Charles Babbage (1791-1871)
I apologize for any confusion this may cause, and I realize it will probably mess up your browser's memory of where you finished reading the thread. But it ceased to be about the waving flag theories, and I should have split it about 115 pages before I did.
